On February 17, 2016, the Davis High School Theatre Department attended The EnsembleTheatre’s hit play production of Fences by the late great playwright, August Wilson. The Davis 9th Grade Campus and Senior Campus took a combined, 40 students to see this professional production, directed by Eileen Morris – Artistic Director. This was a special matinee performance in which the students had a chance to get an up close and personal observation of technical theatre and performance. After the show, the students were allowed to speak with the professional cast about topics ranging from portraying a believable character to having a career in theatre. This is the third production in which The Ensemble Theatre sponsored a trip to see one of their many spectacular productions for students throughout the Houston area. Thanks to both campuses’ administrators for approving the field trip and allowing our students to learn, train, and develop.
